Jana Kulan, the world record holder for the most number of points in a single volleyball game, is summarizing the season in Japan for WorldofVolley.

 

Well, you had a great season in Japan - how would you rate it?

It was awesome, a young team and me, we showed how to be successful with discipline, good organization of the team management and we were respectful for each other. I'm so happy about it.“

Hisamitsu were better just for a golden set. How did you see this final game?

Hisamitsu had better nerve and experience in the golden set. But my young teammates learned a lot, imagine first year in professional team in their career and they are playing in the finals against Hisamitsu. Plus we came to the final with zero points. We did an amazing job.“

In the second game of the finals, you've become the world record holder, scoring 60 points. Petty much impressive?

If my team needs 65 points in a game, I’ll do my very best to give achieve it. Actually, I didn’t know i had made 60 points I just wanted to be a champion. I am grateful so much to those who supported me after the news and sent me all the good wishes,“ says Jana, who scored 60 points in a game against Hisamitsu.

What are the plans for the next season?

My biggest plan for the next year is not to get injured and being very proud of what I do during the games.“

What are you going to do during summer 2019?

Firstly, I’ll go in Canakkale to dive for one week, then I’ll go in Barcelona to rest with my family and friends. I am starting the preps for the next season on August 1st.“

FIVB releases new men’s and women’s world rankings

This is more laughable :) In 2017 turkey was the 12th country in old ranking list
behind the 11th argentina.Then the turks played eurovolley 2017 semifinal (took
bronze) and then vnl 2018 final, vnl 2019 semifinal, eurovolley 2019 final and won
the 2020 european olympic qualification tournament. After all of these,they were
still the 12th team behind the 11th argentina.:D:D:D

Of course the new rankings are more realistic and fairer,I think,but plz note they are not to tell which NT is stronger but to reflect potentials of countries by taking all their performances in a time span into account.

Well,serbia,world and european champ,but has no vnl / world cup medal so far,
why,if they are so mighty? Ok , we all know/guess why, but the ranking system don't pay attention why and it shouldn't for a healty evaluation of serbia's potential.

I also accept serbia's ideal line-up is presently the strongest NT,but this issue is something different. Reply

By Mark Lebedew: The Best Player You Might Have Heard Of...but have probably forgotten

Older video, records and analyses, editing, research by Mark Lebedew are very interesting. I take his work as priceless.. No one else do such a work...He provides us with many volleyball jewels, observations.. In past we often could not see many top tournaments, or matches on TV ….There was no Internet, no YT. Only very limited TV ... We often did not know the background, problems on some tournaments - see e.g. what happened during Italy vs Netherlands OG 1992, on M.L. YT channel, and how it had influenced a final with Brazil..
In time of pandemic, we can take a lesson from some former activities on courts . In past there was a much more decent behaviour during matches, avoiding useless personal contacts , no so and such intimacy as nowadays, no expressive shouting as is a current rule after killing spike or blocks, ourts... Only at the end of the match, tournaments emotions were same as now... (Now we see on 75 and more the useless, risky, ritual teamś hugging per a match) .. Moreover until 1998, volleyball was for TV fans very friendly - due to of a perfect visible. recognizable white ball. Since this time, the screen fans eyes suffer - volleyball has become a pantomime on screens.
Moreover the game was much more smoothly - no so many and so long interruptions as nowadays.. Majority of referees had a respect..
I suppose, if volleyball wants to survive this pandemic crisis, it will have to return to some above mentioned procedures.. Systematically...
